As global leaders met in Denmark to discuss a deal that would help contain and reverse climate change, young activists came together on the National Mall to build a 60-foot replica of Noah’s Ark. Called “Climate Change Plan B,” the ark was meant to call attention to the implications of not following through on Plan A, a comprehensive and legally binding treaty on climate change. Once the ark was completed, a candlelight vigil was held in partnership with local faith groups to try to press world leaders to take strong action. Watch Julie Erickson and Morgan Goodwin talk about the ark and what they hoped to see coming out of Copenhagen.
